May 23

Today is a date that will always stand out to me. For a reason that may seem strange. One year ago tonight, we had one amazing party at my house. The show that I consider the best in the history of television brought its story to an end. (Here is the best explanation I've read of why it's the best, from my friend Rob: Why LOST Matters.) LOST concluded with a riveting 2.5 hour finale. It was an awesome night of TV, but even more importantly, it was a night I would never forget as my family and many of my closest friends gathered for the sendoff. We had a great time!

And that's why it's kind of appropriate for the anniversary to fall this week. I'm currently off the coast of Alaska with nine of the most amazing people in the world. Father. Sisters. Brothers-in-Law. Nieces. Nephew. As we sat around the dinner table last night, talking, laughing, and enjoying the night, I was thinking that times with loved ones like this are the closest thing we ever get to a glimpse of heaven.

So May 23. Two years in a row it's been a pretty cool day. What an awesome family!
